Madison Reed Root Touch Up

We’re all about embracing our natural hair color, but grays or growing-in roots aren’t for everyone. You don’t have to resort to a full-on dye job though—this unique, brush-on powder instantly conceals roots while sealing in the rest of your hair’s vibrant hue. Enriched with a color-protective blend of keratin, argan oil, and ginseng root, it consists of micro-milled pigments that ensure natural-looking dimension and total coverage that won’t streak or stray until your next shampoo. Plus, no drying time required.

This is a strange product. The color didn't match my hair so it's hard to tell what kind of coverage it would give. This is not something I would purchase.

Works but you need a few generous swipes.
Sampled

My hair has a dark brown base with naturally red highlights. I chose the dark brown color to match my roots. My "gray" roots are actually a bright silver hue. So it took at least 2-3 swipes of the MR Root Touch Up to get really good coverage. The directions say to swipe in direction of hair growth but I went in at different angles too. The brush is great because it's got soft but strong bristles. I think I will also try to apply with a small, thin makeup sponge too. I used only at my part line and a little on the sides. I love the texture. It's not sticky but like a very dense powder. It really stays in place even with combing though and 2-3 nights of sleep. I definitely prefer this to any other product especially the spray-ons.

Love this

extends the life of color treated hair when the greys start peeking out and you just don't have time to get your color done. Was super easy to use and not messy at all

Okay Product

This product was okay. I don't have much roots to cover up so this isn't something I would typically purchase.

So So Product

I must admit that I wasn't sure what to expect from this product. My hopes were not high and I'm not certain I was wrong. I have very dark brown hair and I couldn't really tell that much difference. Maybe will work better on finer hair.

Highlighted hair

This product did not work for me since I have many blonde highlights in my hair. If I had solid hair color I would have liked it.

not in the cards for me yet
Sampled

I don't have any gray hairs so this seemed useless for me and the sample was crazy small. However, i loved the sponges that it came with. The products was alright at covering my grown in roots since i dye my hair but it did not look that great. I am sure this would work much better for someone with actual gray hair

Extends Color

This is a good product to use if you want to extend the time between coloring your hair. It is easy to apply and looks great.

Good but not great
Sampled

I have too much gray for this product. It was a nice cover up but the color was off for me. Would possibly try again, not sure.
